Sadie’s biggest developments this month have been perfecting the speed crawl, lots of babbling, and eating puffs. Girlfriend is either starving and wants to eat all the food or could absolutely care less. I think she gets that from me. When she’s in the mood she likes puffs, oatmeal, peas, applesauce, bananas, and prunes. Sadie’s still breastfeed on demand. She loves her some milk.
Oh, and she loves to clap. And we love to watch her do it.
She typically sleeps 8pm-7am and is up once during the night to nurse. Sometimes she sleeps all night without waking! And I’m happy to report that naps have finally improved…mostly. If we are home and I can distract Hudson long enough to get her to sleep, she’ll nap in her crib for 1-2 hours, two times a day. But since she’s a second child, we are rarely home all day. It’s funny, because I remember scheduling EVERYTHING around Hudson’s nap schedule. This poor girl just has to go with the flow as we hustle around town for her big brother’s activities. She’s perfected the nap in the car.
Sadie’s a mama’s girl for sure and is happiest when I’m holding her. But she has major heart eyes for her daddy and her brother. I love the way she loves Hudson. Her eyes light up when he talks to her and he is such a big helper, especially when Sadie’s upset. Hudson can cheer her up and make her smile like no one else can.
Sadie has a cold and runny nose right now, which means she only wants to nap while I’m holding her. I would happily oblige and hold her all day long….except Hudson wouldn’t be too happy about that. The “Babies Don’t Keep” poem usually makes me cry, but right now I just have to laugh at the “so quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep” part….it should really read, “so quiet down toddlers”…because he just can’t seem to be quiet
when I’m rocking her ever.
I have no clue of her height and weight…….but I have a feeling she’s right on track with her big brother at this age.
Hudson calls her “baby Sadie” or “Sadie Mae” and it’s just about the cutest thing ever. We just love this girl to pieces. She’s the perfect fit to our little family. Happy 8 months Sadie girl!
